12z issuance... Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms are
expected once again today. Outside of convection, visibility will
remain atVFR levels and ceilings will be borderlineVFR MVFR.

Expect locally lower CIGS vis in and around heavy rainfall. Winds
remain generally light and out of the southwest. Thunderstorms
dissipate late this evening, with only a few isolated showers
possible after midnight. Patchy fog will be possible late tonight
into early Tuesday morning, primarily inland and in areas that see
heavy rainfall today. 49

Prev discussion issued 430 am cdt Mon aug 20 2018
near term now through Monday night ... A vigorous mid and upper
level shortwave trough begins to shift east from the central
plains into the upper midwest through the next 24 hours. The
local area will remain under the southeastern periphery of this
trough, with deep layer southwesterly flow persisting through
tonight. At the surface, high pressure over bermuda continues to
ridge westward into the western atlantic and eastern gulf of
mexico, maintaining an onshore flow across much of the northern
gulf coast. This pattern means another wet day is in store, with
scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms developing this
morning and continuing through the afternoon and evening hours.

Storm motion will continue to be slow and generally towards the
east northeast. Rainfall rates of 2 to 3 inches per hour will also
be possible given pwats remaining around 2.25 inches across the
area. All of these factors, plus a saturated ground from a wet
weekend, will mean a potential for some minor flooding issues,
particularly in low lying and poor drainage areas. The weather
prediction center is in general agreement with this assessment,
and has much of our area outlined in a marginal risk for excessive
rainfall today as a result. Some gusty winds will also be
possible in stronger thunderstorms, though a deeply saturated
moisture profile should limit the threat for severe weather.

Storms should then dissipate for the most part late this evening,
though a few lingering showers will remain possible primarily near
the coast overnight tonight. High temperatures will continue to
run a few degrees below normal thanks to the cloud and rain
coverage, with highs in the mid to upper 80s expected. Lows
tonight stay in the low to mid 70s. 49
short term Tuesday through Wednesday night ... The upper level
trough over the eastern CONUS Tuesday morning, with the central
axis extending from lake michigan to new orleans, will move
eastward to the eastern seaboard and deamplify through Tuesday
night. A surface low pressure area across southern michigan will
continue to lift northeast into southeast canada through Tuesday
evening, with an associated cold front approaching the region
from the northwest as a strong high pressure system builds across
the central conus. This cold front will pass through the forecast
area by late Tuesday night, and then stall along the coast on
Wednesday. The strong high pressure system centered across the
central great plains will shift eastward across the eastern conus
through Wednesday night, while an upper high pressure ridge builds
in from the west in the wake of the departing upper trough. This
pattern change will bring a much drier airmass into the region,
with mostly clear skies and no rain forecast midweek. Until then,
we will have one more day of scattered to numerous showers and
thunderstorms across the forecast area during the day Tuesday,
with the precipitation tapering off through Tuesday night. 22
long term Thursday through Sunday ... The upper high pressure
system will continue to build in from the west through Friday
night, and then stall over the southeast CONUS through the
weekend. The strong surface high pressure system across the
eastern CONUS will continue to shift eastward, but leave a ridge
of high pressure across the southeast states, resulting in light
and variable surface winds. The dry conditions will persist
through Thursday night, followed by a gradual trend to the more
typical scattered daytime showers and thunderstoms returning over
the weekend due to surface heating and decreasing stability, with
very isolated to rain-free conditions during the overnight
periods. 22
marine... High pressure over the eastern gulf maintains a light to
occasionally moderate onshore flow through Tuesday, with showers
and thunderstorms expected each day. A weak front then pushes
through around midweek, leading to a drier northwest flow
Wednesday and Thursday. Winds then shift back to easterly late
this week and into the weekend as high pressure builds into the
southeastern u.S. 49
